Abuse is a misuse of power intended to harm or control another person. The maltreatment can be physical, verbal, or emotional. All types of abuse can cause pain and psychological distress. Abuse can leave psychological wounds that are harder to heal than bodily injuries.

Moderators will not tolerate abuse , cruelty, or making light of something which someone in need may be

"I would just ask Australians today to get around those who have been victims of child sexual abuse," Mr Morrison told reporters ahead of the verdict handed down at 11.15am.

"Let them know we know it happened, that we want to help you be stronger and to survive what is the most abominable you could think that could happen to an individual with a breach of trust.

"For me, it's about those against who this abuse was directed and acted upon. It's the most abhorrent thing I can think of."

Pell, who was until late-February the Vatican's treasurer, is the highest-ranking Catholic in the world to be convicted of child sexual abuse.

Mr Morrison said it was important to ensure victims became survivors of abuse.

"I led the national apology to these victims. My thoughts are only with them," Mr Morrison said.
